Side By Side // Happy Friday

Today is a big day for me. It's the last day of my 18th week of pregnancy but what makes it a big day is the fact that today we find out if we are having a boy or a girl. Rob is convinced we are having a girl but I have my doubts. I guess we finally find out later today. I'm pretty excited about that. I'm also excited to started planning the nursery and looking for that perfect "take-home-from-the-hospital" outfit. And hey maybe doing some shopping if this turns out to be a boy, or digging out all the newborn clothes if we are having a girl. Either way you will have to wait until Tuesday to find out. I know, that's a long time, but my game so my rules. Make sure to come back on Monday but definitely Tuesday if you want to know if it's another girl or a boy for us.

I am just a week or so from being halfway through this pregnancy which is hard to believe. It's definitely been a different pregnancy than the one I had with Addison. In some ways it has been much harder, especially in the first trimester. But now that we are in the second trimester, it has been a bit easier so far.

Although I am doing the best I can to not compare my two pregnancies, I do enjoy comparing the weekly pictures each week. From the beginning I could see the differences. For one I started this pregnancy weighing a little less. As I look at the pictures I can see that through my first pregnancy I was very bloated for a good chunk of it before it started looking like a little bump. This time, although I have my days where I just look bloated, I feel like it's more noticeable that it's a baby bump.


Of course that could just be wishful thinking.

What do you think? What did your baby bump look like at week 18?

Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!

xo, B
